SEX is…


“Sex is a thoroughly unloved human behavior”

Isn’t it ironic…“that the very thing responsible for every parent and every child is a philosophical orphan? People thirst for a sexonomy, a factual set of fundamental principles that lets us talk and think about sex as a reflexive built-in thing we do, no different than coughing, thinking, sneezing, or singing. Sex is here because we are members of the human species, not because of any act of yours or mine. And most people can’t bring themselves to talk about it.”John Hopkins, university psychologist & John Money, sexologist
